My Prize - It's here!

Thanks to Kawaii Barbie for the lovely eyeshadow palettes from Wet 'N Wild. They arrived today! Yay! I was so excited when I opened my mail box and found the package. So if you all haven't heard, she threw a giveaway a little while ago for 6 palettes from Wet 'N Wild. Various colors and shades, I love it. I was super lucky to have won and now I'll share with you all the palettes I received.

  Excuse the horrible nail polish. I haven't had time to take it off. It is pretty gross looking huh? Anyway, look at this super cute note =].

Everything was packed extremely well. All of the eyeshadows were wrapped together in bubble wrap and then within 4+ sheets of tissue paper.

Unfortunately these 3 got damaged...the two on the left more than the pink one. Sadness =[ My mom was bugging me to give her the far left one but now I can't. lol. I mean she can still use it but it's going to be messy. Oh well. Thank god the pink one didn't get ruined cause that's the one I really really wanted to try.

What do you ladies think? Have you tried any of these? Let me know in a comment below!

And now just a random picture I took the other day wearing black eyeshadow, no foundation, no blush and my gossip lipstick..That's it!

 Have a great day everyone!!

Apothica Products = Giveaway Prize [Picture Heavy]

Hi Ladies!! I hope you all are doing great today! So recently I won a giveaway for a $25 giftcard for The lovely Christine over at Makeup, Beauty & Fashion did this giveaway and I was super lucky to have won it. Now, it did take me FOREVER to figure out what products I wanted to try out. I'm absolutely excited for the items I received because they are just what I wanted. 

[Love my kitty girls picture in the background? hehe]. Here are the products I received. The one on the far right is a sample I received. I actually received two samples but the other one had a hole in the tube so there was nothing inside. Oh well.

From left to right: theBalm: Read my Lips in Gossip, Essie's Knockout Pout and Some type of masque.

Both the lip stick/blam and the nail polish are a beautiful shade of pink. I'm really in a "pink" stage right now. Almost anything I want or craving is pink! 

 The lipstick is the most gorgeous shade of pink ever! Plus it kinda has some sparkles in it. Score! =] Not only is it a beautiful shade of pink but it moisturizes your lips while adding a subtle pop of color.

 Next product I got was the Essie Knockout Pout. I have seen a lot of beauty guru's with this nail polish and I had admired the color for quite awhile, just never got around to purchasing it. Well, figured this was a good opportunity to give it a whirl. I love it! Even though I haven't gotten to use it yet. I will do a post shortly with it on my nails.

 Okay here is the only sample I was able to keep since the other one leaked out. This is supposed to be a masque but I really don't think there's enough in here to cover my face. Plus look at the green color! I would look like a swamp person lol. I might give it a whirl anyway cause it's a sample and I'm always down to try new products.

Here are some swatches of the lovely lipbalm/lipstick [still not sure what to call it specifically] and the lovely Essie knockout pout. Aren't they beautiful?

 Here's a swatch of [Gossip] on my hand. It's beautiful!! To get the above swatch color I rubbed the lipstick in the same area about 5 times to get it to be that dark. It's very subtle but very pretty.

I hope you all enjoyed the products I got from Apothica. If you'd like to check their website out click here.

Update: Giveaway, Life & More

Hi Everyone!! ^_^
So I've kinda been M.I.A for a few days/weeks, I don't even know how long. I just wanted to let you all know that I'm back and I'm going to try my hardest to have more posts popping up for you all!
If you guys have any suggestions on great posts for me to do just let me know.
 I was also curious to see if you guys would want me to do reviews on some of the free shampoos, body washes and conditioners I've received in the past few weeks.
Moving on.. Giveaway..Well I was supposed to have a giveaway when I hit 200 posts but I'm already past my 200 posts deadline. I'm going to try to plan a giveaway here sometime in September or if I get 6 more Followers before then, then I will have it sooner! I can't wait to throw the giveaway. I already know what I'm going to give away and I hope you all will like it. So hopefully soon I'll be doing my giveaway.

Life...well life has just been full of ups and downs and roller coaster rides pretty much. I've actually been a little depressed lately because of my weight and well money issues as well. I'm not broke, don't get me wrong but I am like any other person that wishes they had more money to buy clothes, cute accessories and other stuff. I just want to, for one day, go to the mall and buy a ton of LUSH items and some clothes, shoes and maybe a purse without having to worry about bills. lol. So I guess I kinda stress myself out a little too much over stuff I can't really change. Plus I guess part of my stress is due to the fact that I need to schedule my dentist appointment for next month to have work down on my back tooth that is falling apart. =[ <--sad panda

Anyway, life will go on!! I hope all of you are doing well and if you have anything to vent about or anything you'd love to share just simply leave a comment below.
Also if you'd like to leave some tips on what I can do to improve my blog, just leave a comment below..I appreciate it!!

The 4-1-1 On Shaving Your Arms

I got a request to do a post on shaving your arms so here it is! It's only taken me f-o-r-e-v-e-r to get this post figured out but now I'm ready. I don't know the girls name that requested me to do this post because it shows her as anonymous. But here ya go, I hope this helps any of you out who are curious about shaving your arms and how it looks when it grows back and such.

Let's begin.....

This is how my arms look after having not shaved them in about a month and a half. Pretty gross. The hair is going all over the place instead of just in a nice orderly flow. It doesn't come back any darker or coarser as many people try to believe. It just comes back like normal hair.

 Here's a shot of my arms from the bottom side so you can see how the hair looks after a month + of not shaving. Not too bad but you can see it sticks up instead of laying flat like how it use to. Oh well. lol.

Step 1 to having amazingly smooth arms...Apply a lot of soap. This also helps to allow the razor to glide over your arms easier. Fewer nicks and cuts! That's always a good thing. No one wants to see bloody arms. Ick! >.<

 Sorry for the "messy" razor picture..Just wanted to share with you all the razor I love to use. It's the Schick Hydro razor. I love it because it has 5 blades and it has the gel at the top that helps your arms from getting if you put the gel part of the head down it moves back so that you can get a closer shave with the razor. It's the best razor I have used. I haven't had many nicks or cuts with this baby ;)

Now in this picture, I shaved most of my arm to show how smooth it will be..Pretty much it's going to look like your legs...just on your arms :D I love smooth arms.

 Last picture of the day...You can see where I shaved part of my arm and where I haven't. I decided to show a quick picture of how it looks with half of your hair missing. haha. 

Now for a little story on why I shave my arms and how I got into it:

One day I was getting ready to shower [I'm sure you didn't need to know this part]. Well I was thinking about shaving my arms because some coworkers of mine were doing it. I ended up texting one of my guy friends and asking him what he thought and he told me to do it. So of course I decided to do it that day. My mom wasn't too thrilled even though I was 21 but I was totally thrilled cause my arms were baby bottom smooth and it was nice. Now the upkeep is kinda lame cause you get prickley after a few days unless you wax. I haven't tried waxing but I'm sure it's way better to wax. I just shave cause it's cheaper. LoL.

I hope this helps all of you out there that don't know whether to shave your arms or not. Now, I didn't have too hair of arms but I was always worried about what guys thought of me and I'm the type of person that doesn't like hair at all [besides on my head of course] so it had to go. If you've got hairy arms and wanna give this a try, go for it! It grows back :P

Thanks for reading!

Beauty Show & Tell: Hair Products

Today I thought I'd share with you all some products a friend and I got for Free!! Who loves free products?...I DO!! 

We ended up getting all of our products for free because Herbal Essences and Pantene Pro V were doing promos on their facebook page for 1 free product coupon. Well, I filled out one for my home address and one for my work address and was able to score 2 free product coupons for each brand! Woot! Now, on to the goodies..

My friend went to pick up her products first and told me about a great deal going on at HEB (local grocery store). They were having a bogo on Herbal Essence and Pantene Pro V. Talk about amazing timing! haha. If you bought one shampoo or conditioner, you got one hair product for free. Since we had the free coupon and the in-store coupon, we were able to score more products for free!!

Here's what she was able to pick up:

She picked up the 25.4 Fl Oz bottle of Pantene Pro-V and the 23.7 Fl Oz bottle of Herbal Essences and scored a Pantene Pro-V Detangler spray and an Herbal Essence Body Envy Volumizing Mousse for Free!!

I ended up having 1 more coupon of each [and since I didn't see that you could get the bigger bottles] I ended up getting the smaller bottles of each: 2 Pantene Pro-V Shampoos, 1 Herbal Essences Shampoo and 1 Herbal Essences Conditioner. For my free hair products...I scored: 2 bottles of Pantene Pro V hair detangling spray, 1 bottle of Herbal Essence hair gel (boyfriend wanted to try it) and 1 bottle of Herbal Essences Hair Spray.

I absolutely love what Herbal Essences writes on their bottles! HaHa Give Rapunzel a run for her money :) I hope you all enjoyed me sharing with you all of my free products and what my friend was able to score.

Stay tuned because I will be doing reviews on these products!
